I honestly don't know what you are saying. Seems like we are talking about two different things. Silverbacks is a conference team playing for points.
I spend zero time around usssa people except for bernie in media. Maybe you have me confused with someone else. Who is a utrip elite I spend time with? Please name them...
Points have driven the teams for years. You see what happens when the points no longer mean anything which is the conference championship for some teams each year. Those teams then play backups and sit their pitcher etc.
